And the judgment is that the perceived beautiful is judged to be good, otherwise, no one would want it. Emphasis on Diotima’s...

Why/how can he use it here? What did he do in the 2nd hyp that qualifies? Besides "opinion", Doxa could also be "belief", "appearance", "reputation", "expectation", or...

Stephanus sections: 136d 136e 137a 137b Attendees: Pierre, Barbara, Regina, Eldar, Bradley, JeffS Why did Socrates go to see Zeno, not Parmenides? Why would Zeno want to re-hear Parmenides' hypothesis? And why hadn't he heard it for a long while, being Parmenides' student? Why would Parmenides say he dreaded -- like Ibycus' race horse -- going through the exercise, when in fact, the first (his) hypothesis is quite short, and he had no indication (until Aristoteles' objected) that he would have...

Synopsis JulieH was going to do a presentation on Carl Jung tonight, but changed her mind because of some of what she found out in her preparatory research. So Pierre does a talk primarily focused on Jung's book, “Psychology and Alchemy”. [Note: Pierre mentioned to us the next day (12/29) that he was not satisfied with his treatment of the issues in this talk, and so wants to do another talk on Jung next Friday Jan 4.] We had 3 talks near each other regarding Jung: Part one could be...

Dialogue(s): republic Chapters: book01 Sections: 327a-331d This is the first in Pierre's latest (2018) series of Friday-night talks on Plato's The Republic . Having not read through The Republic as a group in some 12 years, we return to it -- this time informed by our reading of The Parmenides and looking for occurrences of αὐτὸς (i.e., 'autos':Self), which Juan has re-translated, and considering the difference such translation makes on our understanding of this great work, and how we...

Dialogue(s): theology-of-plato Chapters: book1;chap01;chap02;chap03 Attendees: Pierre, Barbara, David, Regina, JulieH, Eldar, JeffS Synopsis Pierre leads the Parmenides study group through another morning. We have moved for a while to reading Proclus' Theology of Plato(*), with the object of understanding the Parmenides better, and especially the orders of the gods encoded within.

Dialogue(s): greater-hippias Sections: 295d-297c [The audio static from 0:03:02 - 0:08:18 has been fixed.] Second NSFRI on the Greater Hippias. (Last week's talk is here . Also, we continue the next day in our NSSAT Saturday chat on the same topic.) This was really a fun talk. Synopsis Pierre explores going through Plato's dialogue, Greater Hippias, replacing the word, "beauty" with the word, "wealth", since in our times, many more people seem concerned with wealth than with...

Dialogue(s): commentary-on-platos-parmenides;greater-hippias;three-pillars-of-zen Chapters: book05 Sections: 982,987 Synopsis Another great Saturday dialoguing informally with Pierre. Pierre suggests that Proclus' 4-part dialectic is either unclear in itself, or that Proclus is discussing something else. At the very least, the four words he uses (as they are translated in Morrow/Dillon: 'Definition', 'Demonstration', 'Division', and 'Analysis') do not correspond to the way we use these words in...

Dialogue(s): parmenides Chapters: hyp1 Sections: 137c Attendees: Pierre, Barbara, JulieH, Regina Notes Pierre set an assignment for the First Hypothesis though we didn't go into the first except to read the opening two Parmenides. The chart is basically the beginning analysis of the hypothesis. I made a mistake when Pierre put up the assignment at first. It only went through the 9th Parmenides and I thought he was referring to the nine hypotheses. That point clears up later. He started with a...

This is our first day (at least in a while) of studying Proclus' Theology of Plato. This morning we don't read any Parmenides, but instead take an initial dip in the water of Proclus' Theology of Plato. For the first part of the session Pierre leads us through a broad preview/survey/sampling in order to get...

Synopsis Nice review and continuation of yesterday evening's (un-recorded) chat with Pierre at the Women's Club about the necessity for the philosophy of the Self. Much of the discussion focuses on the place for "Logos", and the special Platonic meaning of the terms, "Justice", and the post-midwife-talk experience (after one sees how a pathologos plays out in their family in a past scene, etc.). Relating Justice to Joriki (in Zen Buddhism) and other near-Eastern philosophy...

Dialogue(s): parmenides Chapters: hyp3 Sections: 155e Attendees: Pierre, Barbara, Regina, Eldar From Barbara: On the tape the beginning is a bit confusing because we all assumed that Pierre was starting us in Hypothesis 2, we actually started in the Third Hypothesis, in Parm. 4, then made reference to Parm 1, then to 5 and 6
